Google news provides an awesome facility to search and then have a RSS on the result made

Now this is my confusion. I am developing a Social Networking site and want my readers to get news feed depending on their country
example if a users logs in from china. I want to provide him news specific to his country
so I display the RSS feed from

http://news.google.co.in/news?hl=en&ned=&q=china&ie=UTF-8&nolr=1&output=rss&ned=:ePkh8BM9E8JmByvQDgNWHLYAAJLgBts

Is this legal ?

I suggest reading this short terms of use - http://news.google.com/intl/en_us/terms_google_news.html - if you are unsure, you can contact them directly, apparently they respond quite quickly.

jbajaj, if you are not charging money for the use of the web site (ie: not charging membership fees or advertising fees) you might not encounter any resistance from Google.

However you should obtain a qualified legal opinion before you republish anyone's work products.  

"Is it legal" is not the right question.  "Do I violate the terms of service?" is the right question.

If you want to post the text of the query you sent to Google here, I'll be glad to take a look at it.

Thanks Ray

Basically i have a news section in my social network like one in linkedin.com

Membership is free . However there would be premium services. The site would have advertisment

However the section related to News will be free. Its not going to be related to premium services

Thanks once again
